You must have posted that before since I have a recipe that matches that but had no idea where it came from.  It is awesome but I think I can put on 4 pounds just reading the recipe.  :)

We were going to clip her wings so she couldn't fly out but decided she was tame enough to let her have her way. :)

I'm right on the edge of lower rainfall areas but we normally have dry winters and soggy fall and spring.  I have enough hay put away just in case we do get a drought.

Happy Hour / Smoking on the grill and Chicken in the Flower Pot
« on: November 19, 2017, 10:10:16 AM »
Our Egg Delivery hen (E.D.) for short was doing her daily egg laying in the flower pot on our front porch and kept getting off the pot because I had set my smoker up close to the porch.  I turned the grill around and  finally convinced her I wasn't going to mess with her. She is in the upper left above the corner of the grill. The chickens are all pretty tame but Teresa is the one taking care of most of their needs.

We have company coming tomorrow and not being sure what they liked I'm doing some beef ribs, pork spare ribs and some lamb ribs.

It just keeps getting better and better.

I haven't had good shrimp since I moved from Pensacola but I'll save that recipe.

I don't go to doctors any more than I have to but when it comes to the eyes I wouldn't hesitate.

That has to be an awesome feeling especially after going for so long with the bad vision.

The Akbash pup was 14 weeks on the 9th and is just under 50 pounds as of this morning.

Maisy (I'm glad to note) is staying really close to the sheep now that they are in a new pasture that has more open area. The first picture is of the sheep and the next two are the dogs just outside of the frame. I watch the interaction with the dogs and Thor will make some kind of contact with Maisy before laying down beside her. If he doesn't do anything and just flops down, Maisy will move to another spot.

For being so young he is a serious little fella. :)

Thanks Ben

That was a good story.

We hope she will stop by but she left her mark already.  :)

She was unique since she acted tame but never truly fell into the tame mold.

She decided to go out to the wild.  We had been hearing a lot of turkeys calling at the edge of our property so I guess the temptation was too much for her.  We miss her and really enjoyed the experience of raising a  really unique critter but that is what we had hoped for.

That's a good tip.  I usually let soup cool and then take the fat off the top but it takes a long time.

I'm glad to see this thread surface as I had forgotten all about it.  I guess it's time for a copy and paste.  :)

About twice a week we get him on the golf cart and bring him up to the house so he can stay socialized with our herding dogs. Plus we want to make him not be afraid of vehicles.  I have no desire to fight with a 140 pound dog to take him to the vet.  He is friendly to both our herding dogs but the Aussie is afraid of him so we will keep that in mind.  He is already bigger than the Border Collie.

I used to see one quite often when fishing in the Gulf off of Pensacola Beach.  I talked to a few other people that she had approached but evidently she was selective about who she would let see her.  She would get right up next to the boat but never appeared to want to be touched.
